We want your FEEDBACK about HW Elementary School Project

The HWRSD is seeking community input for the proposed HW Elementary School Project. The project team has hosted three Community Forums since January to inform, but also create an open dialogue with all stakeholders. We have created a survey, hoping that you have had the opportunity to attend or watch one of the forums. We are asking community members to watch the most recent recorded Community Forum (the Presentation covers the first 54 mins of the recording) and then fill out a brief survey to provide feedback. 

Thank you in advance for taking the time to engage in this exciting and important project.
